In Cairo, Pauline Beugnies (1982, Charleroi) followed the youth and Avant Garde of the 2011 popular movements in Egypt. Derrière le soleil, her show at the BPS22, condemns the nationalist propaganda and context of violent repression of the opponents under Abdel Fattah el-Sisi's military regime.
Using documents, testimonies and photographs, Pauline Beugnies pulls apart the inaccurate image of the Muslim world conveyed by the media. She speaks of the families' need to prove and make visible the existence of those missing persons whilst the military dictatorship denies any crime against the Egyptian people.
